A cross was burned in the yard of a Smith County man after what his family is referring to as a vicious hate crime occurred. Family members say that Craig Wilson was beaten with brass knuckles and shotMore >>
A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
A major railroad company is getting cited by a local police department because trains are constantly blocking roads. It has been happening in Rossford, especially at the Glenwood Road crossings south of Santus Drive, and south of Bruns Drive, near Buck Road.
The most recent problem happened on Glenwood north of Buck Tuesday June 3 morning. The Rossford police chief says a CSX train was stopped from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. Chief Glen Goss says the increasing delays have been hampering rush hour as people try to get to work.
One delay earlier this spring lasted about 27 hours.
The chief had enough and wrote up a summons, kind of like speeding ticket. He will likely send it Wednesday to CSX officials in Wood County. His goal is not to get the company to pay a fine but rather to get them to the table to talk about how to fix the problem.
The chief thinks CSX should hold up trains in a more rural area if there is a backup ahead. Goss describes how emergency vehicles are affected by these delays.
"They'll have to stop, turn around, and then go around either out to the Perrysburg Township area on Bates Road and hope that that crossing with the same train isn't blocked. Or they would have to go to Lime City Road, Glenwood Road, depending on where the train is stopped," said Chief Goss.
The chief says that would mean miles of extra driving to get to an emergency, which is something the city's residents can't afford.
